- By 2011, the Pentagon wants 20,000 troops dedicated to responding to a nuclear terrorist attack or other domestic catastrophe in the U.S., a proposal that has raised civil liberties concerns regarding the Posse Comitatus Act. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and the director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the Pentagon's plan will face opposition from governors across the country. "I believe the states have had such a strong voice on this, that this kind of proposal will be actively reviewed, and because of the increase, hopefully by 2011, in National Guard support, there really wouldn't be any need for this kind of specialized force."

- President-elect Barack Obama has promised that one of his first major initiatives will be to close the prison at Guantanamo Bay, shutting the door on opaque military tribunals. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and the director of the Center for Health and Homeland Security, said the existing system at Gitmo is fraught with problems, and "civilian criminal trials will work with al-Qaida operatives."

- President-elect Barack Obama has chosen Gary Gensler, a former assistant Treasury secretary, to lead the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). The CFTC could be tasked with regulating the complex financial instruments that brought down some of Wall Street's most venerable institutions or, the agency could merge with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Michael Greenberger, JD, a professor at the School of Law and a former director at the CFTC, said, "It could be that Gary is being brought in to shut it down or it could be a sign, given his prestige and clout, that the CFTC is going to play a prominent role in regulatory reform."

- The driver who fell asleep while crossing the Bay Bridge this summer - apparently causing a fatal wreck that sent a tractor-trailer plunging into the water more than 30 feet below - will face only traffic charges. Andrew Levy, JD, an adjunct professor at the School of Law and a Baltimore defense attorney, said Kratovil could have tried to seek criminal charges against Baldwin. "It's probably a pretty responsible, conservative decision (to not seek criminal charges)," he said. "I'm not sure all prosecutors would make that same decision."
